THE EIGHTY-DOLLAR CHAMPION Snowman, the Horse That Inspired a Nation

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This seems an opportune time for Letts's classic horse biography to be rereleased as an audiobook. Arthur Morey's delivery brings this history, much more than a horse story, to life. His narration is smoothly conversational--whether he's recounting the history of immigrant horse master Harry de Layer and Snowman, the old plow horse he trained to become the champion jumper that charmed the world, or he's giving context with a look at the history of horses as workers and athletes. Morey weaves the threads of Harry's life, Snowball's transformation under Harry's care, and the role of the horse in America's history into a unique tapestry that gives the listener an appreciation for the belief in a dream and the hard work that can bring it to life.
